It is important that you choose a secure password for each of the resources described here. It is equally important that you keep your password(s) in a secure place and frequently change them.
For the security of your account, do not use a password which is also a real word, but instead put some number in it and use a combination of lower and upper case letters.
Do not use the word password as a password.
A better choice would be pA55w0Rd.
Most of your password(s) can consist of any alphanumeric characters, e.g. a-z, A-Z, and 0-9. Note that due to technical considerations, some password systems do not allow special characters, such as @ ^ ( | ; etc.
WCC requires strong passwords for all systems. They must be unique, include lower and uppercase alpha characters, numeric characters, and special characters (e.g. %, ?, #, etc). Passwords must not contain real words (e.g. dog, house, Sidney, etc.) and they must be at least 8 characters long. An example of a strong password is C6gKv2WL!
